Sgt. Pepperoni’s Pizza Store is pleased to announce the grand opening of its long-awaited Irvine restaurant on August 12, 2021. And we are pleased to say we were one of the first invited to check it out and celebrate the new location. For those who aren’t familiar, Sgt. Pepperoni’s has been a local spot known for handcrafted pizza made from scratch using only the freshest, highest quality ingredients for nearly 50 years. With two other locations in Newport Beach and Aliso Viejo, this community-oriented restaurant has now opened a third location to serve the students and families in Irvine and beyond. The Irvine menu offers Sgt. Pepperoni’s full lineup of handcrafted pizzas, apps, salads, sandwiches, and desserts, plus a curated beer and wine list for the perfect pizza pairing.
The new location has a large dining room with an open kitchen, offering guests a glimpse into Sgt. Pepperoni’s pizza-making magic, and a spacious patio with café lighting for open-air dining. The patio is also where you can find live music being performed, which is sure to elevate your dining experience. The restaurant is furnished in Sgt. Pepperoni’s fun way, that has a charming nostalgic feel to it. There is a giant gumball machine in the corner, the walls are adorned with unique Beatles memorabilia, and there’s even an arcade of games making this a hot spot for families and friends of all ages. Conveniently located in the heart of Irvine’s University region, Sgt. Pepperoni’s offers wifi, live music, and a warm atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.
Founded around family, friendship, and community, Sgt. Pepperoni’s is owned and operated by a group of childhood friends and their families. The family-friendly restaurant prioritizes giving back and regularly hosts fundraisers for local schools, sports teams, and Julian’s LEGO Corner at CHOC Children’s Hospital. The new store is located at 4533 Campus Drive in Irvine and will be open daily for dining and takeout from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.
“Sgt. Pepperoni’s is Orange County’s longest operating pizzeria,” said Stan Frazier, partner of Sgt. Pepperoni’s. “We’re humbled to expand our local legacy and serve the foodies, families, and students in Irvine and beyond.”
